This year, after 15 years of yoga practice and transforming my body, I found myself hitting a plateau.
Though my practice regularly involves power moves like jumping forward into Crow Pose and holding Warrior Pose for a long time, my muscle tone seemed to be stuck on autopilot: never decreasing, but never really going to that next level, either. My body, it seems, has become accustomed to the level of my practice. Whether it’s in weight loss or athletic training goals, hitting a plateau is normal. It’s the balancing point that happens any time the body gets used to what you’re asking of it, especially if you don’t ask any more. If you’re not getting out of bed some mornings a little sore and able to pinpoint the muscles you’ve worked the day before, then you might benefit from a shake-up, too. To move past the plateau, I could have just started practicing more. I know what some of you are thinking: “This chick owns a yoga studio and practices a ton … I don’t have that much time.”
Ab Workouts. The next month or two of work on Xanga 2.0 is going to be busy, so I wanted to share with everyone a roadmap of how we’re thinking about things! We’re dividing the work on this project into four basic phases. Phase 1. Data migration As described here, we’ve imported over every account that we have on Xanga over to the new system so that anyone who could sign into Xanga can still sign into Xanga 2.0. (Try it here!) Finally and most important of all, we’ve imported over 2 million blogs from the old system. . * We’ve archived the blogs of the hundreds of thousands of blogs where the user has logged in in the past 5 years and has at least two subscribers. * We did an additional set of archives for 200k users who had logged in the past year and had at least 10 blogs. * We’ve also archived the blogs of every single user that’s ever been premium at any point in the past… And of course, a lot of you guys archived your own blogs using the old Xanga archive generator.
